    I have recently obtained a female golden phesant from a breeder. She is about 4-6 months old and is making slight high-pitched wheezing gasp like sounds as well as sneezing and what seems to be a slight gurgle occasionally.

    Those are the only symptoms I have noticed so far. She has no other physical abnormalities that I know of, however this is my first time with large birds. My previous experience is my English budgie so this is a big leap.

    Some extra info: My pheasant is housed with a same aged India blue pied peacock. He seems normal other than a tendency to eat poo.

    Thank you. I'll try to figure it out from that list but I'm not sure. I'm still very new to this forum.
